The price tag of operating six American universities in Qatar totals at least US$400 million, according to the Washington Post, which has obtained new information about Education City schools here. The figure is based on US tax records, US Education Department data and public records, including a recently released contract that shows Texas A&M receives $76.2 million from Qatar Foundation (QF) annually.

QF also reportedly provided financial support to other branch campuses in 2014, including Weill Cornell Medical College ($121.7 million), Carnegie Mellon ($60.3 million), Georgetown ($59.5 million), Northwestern ($45.3 million) and VCU ($41.8 million).
